Nancy, don't forget to post on your blog...

Here are some of my latest cards:
The first is a Valentine's Day card. I was going for the look of redwork with the SU set Vintage Valentines. It is considered a kick stand card, and I did it for one of the Splitcoast Challenges. The second is also a sketch from one of the challenges, but it is for a Girly Girl card swap that my friend Dawn is hosting on the site. There was a lot of fussy measuring for the second card. I also used glittery pens and I actually embossed parts of it. I often forget about embossing, and I really like the look of it! It pays to rediscover some of your older tools out there!

That should be my mantra daily because I can never seem to remember to post on here! It always seems like such hard work, but it really isn't!! I haven't been stamping much in the past few days, but I've been trying to plan out cards! I have scrapbooked quite a bit lately. I actually got 6 pages done. I spent one night planning them and the next night putting them together. Planning certainly makes things much easier.

I'm also putting off starting another major project. I haven't made a quilt in quite some time, and my 3 year old is getting her big girl bed soon. Try explaining to a 3 year old that her bed takes 4-6 weeks to come. Meredith simply thinks it is coming in the mail, so every day when I go out to check the mail, she asks, "Mommy, did my big girl bed come?" She is definitely not one to easily forget things (she takes after her daddy in that regard). Anyway, I have the fabric and the pattern for the quilt...I just have to execute it! I'll need to send it away to be quilted, so that may take some doing. Either way, it won't be done before her actual bed arrives.
One little funny Meredith story before I go...
Meredith takes a dance class (half ballet/half tap) on Fridays. Well, we were running late, and she is very much a creature of habit. When she is rushed, she doesn't do well (she definitely gets that from me!). Anyway, she didn't want to participate at first, and she was getting agitated. She has a habit of saying, "I'm a mad girl" when she is upset. While at dance, she stomped her foot and said, "I'm a mad ballerina!" It was pretty funny!
